Instead, their tenure as a band has endowed them with the musical precision of a well-trained army.

    Since the age of three, Basia has been sitting on piano stools and trying to hammer things out. It started with her piano-teacher mum, but along the way Basia’s picked up guitar, autoharp, banjo, ukelele, sax and flute. In high-school her instrument was the upright bass – a lone girl among “eight-foot-tall guys, goofing off with the tubas”. There’s a sense of play that still suffuses her music, jostling under the songs of regret and love, want and joy.

The warm analogue sounds of classic soul should not be overlooked either, for they weave themselves most intensely into the records DNA.

With each song, you're taken on an emotional rollercoaster, and you enjoy the ride, going from celebration to sadness, nostalgia to hope." - NYLON
    Chris Garneau draws influences from the likes of Nina Simone, the otherworldly pop songs of Tori Amos and the alien harmonies of the Cocteau Twins to the devastating confessionals of Cat Power, Nick Drake and Elliott Smith. Combining emotional vocals and perfectly paced piano led orchestrations, Garneau's has found his own voice, which is utterly magical.

    Crooks on Tape is John Schmersal (Enon, Brainiac), Rick Lee (Enon, Skeleton Key, Butter 08), and Joey Galvan. The unscripted band was born out of a simple notion: convene, improvise, and record every moment.
    In 2010, the Los Angeles trio assembled a rotating fortress of instruments, synthesizers, samplers, and loopers. Crooks recorded hundreds of hours of material, largely instrumental in its original performance. Fingerprint is the first evidence of this undertaking and a window into the band’s sound. The debut record you hear is analogous to tiny snapshots of an altered crime scene.

    Never one to rest on his laurels or do what’s expected, Dan Mangan has, yet again, transformed his sound. From the traditional stripped-down acoustic folk of 2010’s Nice Nice Very Nice, to the sweeping orchestration and avant-jazz arrangements of 2012’s Oh Fortune, Dan Mangan works best when he’s moving forward, challenging himself.
    His latest, Club Meds, released in 2015 by City Slang, is a departure, both sonically and thematically. The music is darker, more complex, but just as affecting as anything he’s ever done, with the richness and honesty of his singular voice ascending over the music.

    Their last album, 'The New Life', was an unexpected underground hit in early 2013, taking the band around the world and garnering much critical praise. On 'Arms Around a Vision', the band’s third album, released via long term home, Tough Love Records, they’re more widescreen than ever but also more direct and aggressive.

They leave the perfect amount of space for microscopic shifts in Joan's voice, without sacrificing their own awesome idiosyncrasies. Nathan Salsburg's guitar follows every twist of the melody. When the song breaks your heart in two, Nathan is there with a high E-string to sew it back together.

  90. Mike Krol (USA)
    Artist image
    Mike Krol got his bike stolen and his heart broken. He bailed on graphic-design-as-career.
    He kept playing drums and guitars, and he kept writing songs about the stuff he hated and the stuff he loved. Leaving Milwaukee for Los Angeles, he took a few years’ worth of wrong turns. But when he showed up at a studio in Sacramento in March 2014, he had his affairs in order. Plug the vocal mic into a guitar amp. Plug the guitar into an overheating box of vacuum tubes. Put the computer in the closet. Roll the tape.

    All of which is good going for a singer who started her musical life fighting chronic stage nerves only to deliver her deeply personal songs in that most magical yet, let’s face it, hardly universally accessible mother tongue, Icelandic.

    Pale Blue was born by chance. During the writing process of Capricorn Rising, Mike Simonetti was asked to remix tracks from the West Coast twosome Silver Hands. Immediately taken by the incredible range of lead-vocalist Elizabeth Wight, he reached out to collaborate. The result of the bi-coastal email exchange would eventually become Pale Blue.
    Their debut album - 'The Past We Leave Behind' - is the first release on 2MR. It encompasses a myriad of sonic elements, ranging from rhythmic, melodic techno to atmospheric ambient productions, while also incorporating Simonetti’s varied background in noise, drone, and even experimental dream pop.

    “This is where a lot of my songs come from,” he says. “They are stories that revolve around that life.” His debut album will be titled Terminal Nostalgia; a reflection of his past, but also a warning note that life should be about now, not only something to carve into a remembrance. The album is colored by his discovery of music as an outlet, and attempts to capture an approach that is at once experimental and accessible, whilst also intense and intimate.

    Now, audiences will get to see what all the fuss is about as Fagan prepares to embark on his very first tour of Europe.

    Their sound pays homage to influences ranging from Robert Johnson to Jack White, but its smothered in greasy, gritty soul, and punched with funk. Early on in their career, Hall and Rogers made the choice to limit their sound to whatever they could play between them, using only their mouths, hands and feet, and eventually the sound became larger than the band itself.

    By facing the most hopeless parts of himself without illusion and putting his past demons to bed, the creation of Deeper was an intense personal exploration of existence for Vasquez.

    For them, this record is a document of an intense week of abundant creativity mixed with writer’s block. A week of tired ears on stubborn heads and ultimately the crystallisation of our ideas. That’s how it was for us, for those of you listening perhaps it will be something else.

    Artist image
    A new Reykjavik based duo and gentlemen of the sea THROWS, call home a studio that overlooks the old industrial harbour. Inspired by life on the ocean and the flow of the winding back streets, crowded bars and bustling fishermen cafes of Iceland's capital.
    Whilst watching the sunrise over the water through the big open window overlooking the Harbour, the music flows out of them like the waves hitting the shoreline as synths, old guitars and an old battered off-key piano are all they need to take their otherworldly pop wherever the wind may take them.

  134. Tove Lo (SWE)
    Artist image
    As anyone with ears will tell you, Sweden is quite good when it comes to fostering amazing pop talent. With Stockholm's Tove Lo, however, the typical mould of elegant heartfelt electropop has been beautifully corrupted by the sort of lyrical honesty and rawness that not only ruffles feathers, but makes you want to clutch your hand to your chest and wail along at the top of your lungs.
    “I don't like to filter it. I get into a flow and get it out, but if I stop myself I just think 'why? Why be subtle? Just say it as it is'. It's not 'I'm a single girl, let's party all night long', it's more 'I'm really destructive right now and I don't care'. I think my honesty bothers some people.”

  136. Tweens (USA)
    Artist image
    Bridget Battle’s last band might have been a high school choir, but the 21-year-old singer for Cincinnati’s Tweens is no goody two shoes.
    Look no further for proof than their recently released Self-Titled LP, the punk-tinged debut from the trash-pop trio, that showcases a melodic, driven and exceedingly catchy sound that’s anything but well behaved. So rat your hair, slip on your leather jacket and hold on tight because Tweens may be young but they’re certainly not naïve, and with the release of this freshman LP, they’re breaking curfew and nobody’s safe.

  138. Weird Dreams (UK)
    Artist image
    Weird Dreams is the nom de plume of the now Paris-based multi-instrumentalist, Doran Edwards.
    New record, Luxury Alone, represents a transformation from the 2012 debut album 'Choreography''s guitar and harmony driven powerpop, to a more introspective synth and fantasy focused sound. An abstraction of personal, private emotion and a projection of a fantasy image, the album was written, recorded and mixed in a 4 year period of uncertain times that documents loss, derealisation and the constructing of a new identity.

  140. When Saints Go Machine (DK)
    Artist image
    When Saints Go Machine are a hard band to pin down, four young men doing things with electro pop that no one has done before.
    The Danish four-piece formed in 2007 are a complicated mix of influences. There’s dance music in there, for sure, but also post punk, some experimental electronica in the Aphex Twin mould, and, crucially, a healthy dose of pop. You could describe the end result as a heady mix of Caribou, The Knife/Fever Ray and Arthur Russell. But, really, it doesn’t sound like anything else out there.

    Artist image
    Liberated abandon of their primitive soul strikes an immidiate and invigorating chord hard in the lister.
    Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Weliin create their music with constant spontinaiety and exploration into sounds, rythms and instruments as well as a desperation and obsession to create timeless music that addresses the basicalities and essense of life.

  145. Young Ejecta (USA)
    Artist image
    Young Ejecta is an electronic duo based in Brooklyn, NY comprised of singer-songwriter Leanne Macomber (Fight Bite, Neon Indian) and acclaimed producer Joel Ford (Autre Ne Veut, Oneohtrix Point Never, Ford & Lopatin).
    Their collaboration began in 2012 when Ford sifted through years of Macomber’s foggy melodic bedroom demos. He, in turn, offered instrumental pieces of his own and a record was in the works. His slick sound and skillful arrangements elevated Macomber’s lo-fi pop ballads, while her acrobatic melodies and whispery vocals gave whimsy and dimension to Ford’s determined beats and dancable textures.

  146. Young Galaxy (CAN)
    Artist image
    The winter of 2014/2015 took Young Galaxy from their studio in Montreal to Gothenburg and back.
    The band’s brilliant new full length Falsework completes the sound they have been mining on their past two albums Shapeshifting (2011) and Ultramarine (2013) with producer Dan Lissvik (Studio, Atelje). The album is undeniably synth pop without the simplicity and was informed and inspired by 80’s electro, acid house and r&b, music that was well ahead of its time. Falsework was made using machines from the past to sound like music from the future.
